comment How do I test to see if all writes to my hard drive are aligned to its 4k sectors?
Do you know if iostat is reporting on the number of reads/writes that the OS makes to the block device, or is this number based on the drive reporting how many blocks it has read and written?

Since dm-crypt is one of the layers in my stack, this solution is not sufficient, since these characters will not be written to the disk.
